    Default Radeon R300 Gallium3D Benchmarks On Mesa 10.1 Git

    Phoronix: Radeon R300 Gallium3D Benchmarks On Mesa 10.1 Git

    While the ATI Radeon X1000 (R500) series graphics processors are about eight years old, there's still requests from time-to-time to run new benchmarks to show how the open-source Gallium3D driver is working for the ancient graphics hardware powered by the R300g code-base. For those into old ATI R500 GPUs, here's some benchmarks of the latest code...

    That's correct, but they are based on R300 or R400. The chip tested in the article is a genuine R500.
